A Farther Place

In the scope of passages,
Faith is what’s assured…
Feathered hopes of golden wings,
Somehow become blurred…

But promises of pinnacles,
Tempt my restless soul…
While gondoliers in galaxies,
Watch the days unfold…

I’m going to a farther place,
Beyond the brightest star,
A different sphere and latitude
A realm found afar…

And in the kingdom of afar…
No calendars are made,
Time’s not rushing anywhere,
And yesteryears won't fade…

I’m going to that farther place,
My home so faraway,
Where prayers are spun, one by one,
In Light that always stays…

I’m going to that farther place
But not by my own step,
My heart will fly and never die,
By a promise that was kept…
